100 confirmed cases of chikungunya could rise to 400 next week
Within approximately seven days, confirmed cases of chikungunya increased from 66 to 100 in Yucatán and are expected to reach 400 next week, according to Jorge Mendoza Mézquita, State Secretary of Health.
Regarding dengue, he said a month ago it began to rise and that 80 municipalities in the state have reported confirmed cases.
To date there are 828 dengue patients in Yucatan, of which 620 are of classic and 208 hemorrhagic varities, and in total represent a 23% increase over the same period last year, Mendoza said.
The health minister announced these figures in the context of the resumption of a massive trash removal program coordinated by the state government with the support of the City of Mérida and other authorities to fight mosquitoes that transmit the two illnesses.
Yucatán Governor Rolando Zapata Bello urged the public to cooperate with the program in which more than 5,000 people and 400 vehicles are involved.
